Country health; a priority
This International Day of Persons with a Disability (IDPwD), Marathon Health is reaffirming their commitment to creating a sustainable workforce for regional Australia, ensuring choice and control for NDIS participants.
“Country Australians are waiting weeks, if not months, to access specialist support through their NDIS plans. The gap between rural healthcare and our metro counterparts is obvious, and it’s something we are committed to addressing,” comments Justine Summers, Executive Manager of Service Delivery.
In the last financial year, the not-for-profit’s staff travelled over 1.2 million kilometres to provide services to participants – a number of who have stated they’d otherwise be travelling vast distances to access that same support.
